See Jess Run: Volume 2…and a giveaway!

A couple months ago, I told you all about my plans to run the Disneyland Half Marathon. I also included my running playlist, which was almost more exciting for me than announcing my big plans.

Now, one thing you should know about me (I know I say this a lot): I am obsessed with music. I’ve probably told you all this, but it’s true and bears repeating. Music is what motivates me most when I’m exercising – more than getting in shape, more than burning calories, more than the promise of slimmer thighs and a tighter booty. I can’t work out without music. If I don’t bring my iPod with me to run – or whatever – I might as well go home because that workout is going to suck.

At any rate, since I had so much fun creating my first playlist, I wanted to bring it back with a fresh new playlist and something fun for you all…more on that in just a bit.

I’m going to theme it up for this one, and maybe future ones if you’re into it! This playlist’s theme is all about 90s music. I think that decade of music is just about the ultimate: Foo Fighters. Nirvana. Blink 182 and Nada Surf and Biggie and 2Pac and Salt-n-Pepa AND…

Maybe you just want to listen to the playlist:

  1. I would use the iTunes gift to make a playlist with Top 40 singles… I use iTunes for all the guilty pleasure music when I don’t actually want to buy the album 🙂

  2. I would definetly use it to download some of the new Beyonce, DJ Trashy, Anything with a good beat that I can run to. I am definetly over due to freshen up my playlist 🙂 Thanks!!!

    • People who can – and like to! – run without music intrigue me. I use music as a means of distraction because otherwise I’d be counting my steps and thinking “how much longer how much longer how much longer?” But I would love to keep trying to run without music. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to just be with your thoughts. 🙂

  3. I could really use some new tunes to work out with, so I would use the iTunes card for that. I love to see other people’s playlists, especially when they are for working out. Keep them coming, I need more suggestions!

  4. I’m not really sure what kind of music I would pick. I haven’t listened to anything current in a very long time. Probably some peppy 80s/90s music!

  5. I’ve mostly stopped listening to music while I run, so there’s a decent chance I’d use the gift card to buy fun game apps instead of music.

  6. I like most up beat music, recently even some country. The other night we watched a show featuring Chuck Berry, he is in his 80’s and still rocking. But, I like a lot of Gaga and top 40.

  7. I think it’s been at least a year since I last purchased music on iTunes. I definitely need to update my playlist with some recent hits.

  8. I absolutely love your playlist, I’ve got lots of those songs on my half playlists (yes, I have more than one playlist for halfs) I need my songs to get me through my runs.
